Ericsson Relives ‘Dragon’ Win at Indy in New YouTube Film

Marcus Ericsson likes that the inspiration for the new movie about his 2022 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge victory came from a newspaper. Ericsson said his fellow Swede, movie director Erik Stenborg, was reading The Indianapolis Star on a post-race flight back to Sweden when a headline about the driver’s winning, zig-zag “dragon” move to fend off challengers caught his attention. To say Ericsson is a fan of the 63-minute film is an understatement. “You might see the driver driving over the (finish) line, but it’s such a team effort,” Ericsson said. “It was very natural in that way,” Ericsson said of the dialogue with Hinchcliffe. “I was just mad, so mad,” Ericsson told Hinchcliffe. Later, Ericsson described the intensity of the race heightening, with “elbows up.”. “There’s no words – there’s no words,” Hinchcliffe said. Replied Ericsson: “It’s tough watching it even now.”. “(That) should not have happened,” Ericsson said of Johnson’s Turn 2 accident. Ericsson said the move didn’t have a name until The Star gave it one.
